I have the F550 with the 3s 5200 lipo battery but i can't seem to get long fly times.
Is the settings on my voltage wrong?

What's onboard your F550? How much does it weigh?? Mine is a fatty weighing in at 2,370gr. I use a Onyx 6400mAh 35C 3S (512gr) or a LHS 6600mAh 35C 3S (502gr) and I fly for about 8 minutes. My voltage is set as follows:
First Level: No Load 11.30v Loss: .50 Loaded: 10.80v
Second Level: No Load 11:00v Loss: .50 Loaded: 10.50v

How long are you flying for with your current settings?? I also see that you have commas where there should be decimals. Ex. 11,55 instead of 11.55. Not sure if that matters or not.

Finger troubles. A question if that is my settings what must I set the buzzer on to sound the alarm. that's now voltage per cell ?

I get about 5min flying time. I just would like the right settings so I don't damage the battery but I am a videographer and would like to get the most of the battery so I can stay longer in the air especially when you get "the shot" you want. Any help will do.

How much does it weigh? How many mah's are you putting back into the battery after you discharge it? You need to know these answers to figure out how to get longer flight times.

How long are you actually expecting to fly?? My max time from start to finish is 8 minutes. My F550 weighs in at 2375gr and I'm using a Lipo 3S 6400mAh 35C and a 3S 6600 mAh 35C.

I'm getting 7 - 8 minutes out of my F550 which is running 4S 5000mah batteries and is a super fatty weighing in at 2615g.
I land when my cells are 3.3 under load which bounce back up to around 3.7 per cell no with no load.

reduce your levels by 1.0v will give more without any damage to the lipo
